    Davis / Kleefstra / Kleefstra – Tongerswel

    ,
    Gareth Davis and the Kleefstra brothers got to know one another when Jan Kleefstra received an album from Gareth by mail-order by mistake. He liked the album though and told Gareth through MySpace. The contact was made and a plan to meet up and make some music was quickly formed.

    Maninkari – The Half Forgotten Relic of a Dream

    ,
    With The Half Forgotten Relic of a Dream, Maninkari enters a new era. After three albums taken from the same studio sessions, they are back with more direct and refined tracks. As usual, Maninkari uses a great deal of instruments in many styles (cimbalom, cello, viola, synthesizers, percussion instruments), which is quite genre-breaking, without taking the easy way out.

    Larkian / Yellow6 – Offtempo

    ,
    The history of Larkian and Yellow6 traces back to around 2001 when Cyril was running the Tricycle Evolutif record label. He invited Jon to release a 7″ single on the label and this, ‘Grey’ was released early 2002. There were some discussions about a split release at the time but this never came about. Forward to 2009 and Cyril and Jon get back in contact via individual releases on the same labels (October Man, Cathedral Transmissions). Cyril sends a track for Jon to contribute to and the collaboration that has become ‘Offtempo’ began. After around a year of file exchange, composition and recordings, the first common collaborative effort by Yellow6 and Larkian was ready to find a home.

    Yann Novak – Presence

    ,
    Yann Novak is a sound, video and installation artist living and working in Los Angeles. His work utilizes different forms of digital documentation as a point of departure. Through the digital manipulation of these sound and image files, his works serve as a translation from documents of personal experiences into an open ended autobiographical narrative. By choosing subject matter that is also relatable to the audience, Novak’s work creates a hybrid state, balancing between his own personal history and that of the audience. Yann has had previous works released on Line, Infrequency, White Line Editions. In addtion Yann manages the label Dragon’s eye which has seen numerous works by the artist released.

    Mark Fry / The A Lords – I Lived In Tress

    ,
    Released by RCA Italy with little fanfare in 1972, Mark Fry’s Dreaming With Alice is one of those very particular albums whose potency and poetry seem to owe everything to their era but whose virtues only gain traction, and with it coach-loads of interested parties, many years, if not the odd epoch, after their conception. Effectively a late-period psych-folk obscurity that became a record connoisseur’s Holy Grail once all things vaguely Incredible String Band-shaped became once again à la mode in the middle of the last decade, Dreaming With Alice, frequently bootlegged and described by Dream magazine as “one of those albums that feels like a secret you can’t wait to share”, had finally found its time and place.

    Danny Saul – Harsh, Final

    ,
    As guitarist with Tsuji Giri (Manchester’s biggest and best kept secret ‘almost’ band of recent years, alongside The Sonar Yen), Saul self-released a Steve Albini-recorded album in 2005, with the band promptly self-destructing upon release. After all the tribulations associated with the process of production and shared decision-making, Danny rethought every aspect of how to perform and record with the minimum of intervention or interference; Harsh, Final is the culmination of a bloody minded pursuit for a personal satisfaction in both making music and Doing Things Right. ‘Your Death’ opens the album with softly plucked acoustic guitar, and proceeds to build layers of acoustic and electric guitars into a hazed atmosphere, which suddenly comes into focus as the track s defining chords state that this is a song, and that everything put in place so far is only framework. And in many ways this typifies what makes the record really tick: the fission between the pull of the songs and the musical dynamics working within and yet outside them. Be sure – Danny Saul is very much not a conventional singer-songwriter, with all the compromise and baggage that carries with it.

    Warm Widow – Widower

    ,
    Manchester’s Warm Widow never really intended to make this album – well, not in the way that “Widower” presents itself anyway. This was supposed to be the scratchy blueprint for the actual Warm Widow album, recorded, you know, like proper albums are recorded: in a recording studio perhaps, with an array of ‘appropriate’ microphones, with an actual producer (or certainly an engineer), and time to allow the band the breathing space to ‘nail it’, with additional options to try multiple takes and overdubs – in general, recording with a certain amount of control and ease.

    Robe. – Time Dilation

    ,
    Drone/noise in the vein of older Burial Hex, but there’s some more subdued guitar-based action going on here. Like a much, much more interesting version of (unfortunately coincidentally named) Robedoor. The sound of ceremonies drifting across great fogged expanses of time and space. Some moments, especially the last track “Final Glimpse” remind of dark ambient classics like Lustmord’s Heresy and Lull’s Cold Summer.

    Elian – Whispers, Then Silence

    ,
    To say Michael Duane Ferrell (the man behind the Elian moniker) is a patient man would be something of an understatement. But then the work of Elian is all incredibly understated anyway, so it all fits nicely. I first heard Elian’s work through mutual contacts, my first experience being ‘We Are All Visitors Here’ on the rather wonderful Test Tube label. In fact, if you go over the work he has released, you will instantly notice a person who clearly takes his time and treats each album as a labour of love in the fullest sense.

    :take: – s/t

    ,
    After opening our series of split vinyls with white/lichens last year, :take: is back with an EP, and this time, it’s through a new media, i.e. CD format. This great adventure between the label and the guitarist goes on and we hope that we will continue our collaboration in the future. That being said, you should know that we are truly fond of this beautiful project that begun two years ago. Recorded and mixed at home with heart by Laurent Bichara, it was then mastered by Jeremy Lemos. This should be the last step before :take:’s debut album.

    Arkhonia – Trails/Traces

    ,
    Arkhonia’s “Trails/Traces” fulfils the much promised, but seldom delivered, remit of large portions of ambient music – “to take the listener on a journey”… From the deep rumblings of the album’s opener to the final decaying notes and crackles of its closing track, all manner of mood-shifting experimentation directs (and occasionally derails) the listener along a sonic path that is at times unnerving and, at others, warmly welcoming.

    Northern Songs is the blissful sound of Chris Weisman leaving his body and dissolving into the universe; he sounds very free. Greg Davis (electronic music composer, fractal maker) helps the usually obsessive Chris (psychedelic four-tracker, music artist) surrender to the void.

    Andrea Ferraris / Matteo Uggeri – Autumn Is Coming

    ,
    Experimental music, by its very nature, is often unconcerned with melody; other qualities of sound and music are explored, taken apart and reconstructed with the intent of presenting the listener with surprising new ways to engage with the listening experience. Many commendable aural experiences have been produced by mere tweaking of single variables within sound; much of the ambient canon relies on a relatively minimal bag of tricks. It is, however, clear from the outset that “Autumn is Coming…” is a very different beast indeed.

This album marks what some may consider a departure for 12k: sublime and gentle, minimal, acoustic J-pop, which once may have been destined for the now-defunct Happy label, but can now sit comfortably beside 12k’s roster of electronic/acoustic ambient hybrids.

    Wreaths – Like Sparks From Throats Falling

    ,
    Wreaths is the moniker of Michael R Donaldson. He creates experimental music with a variety of instruments and techniques and has an idiosyncratic approach to capturing the ideas which reside in his head. Like Sparks From Throats Falling opens with ‘Nautical Almanac’. The track begins with long drones and electronics. Slowly building, the effect is mesmerising, then suddenly everything falls away into the abyss, ending with hushed tones, a hint of what’s to come. ‘O! Like Falling Snow’ proffers a more melancholic mood, with plaintive guitar playing backed by mournful strings. The piece is sublime and the delicate guitar feels like it may falter and fall apart at any moment, the fragility lending emphasis to the beauty present.

    Small Town Boredom – Notes from the Infirmary

    ,
    Artists thrive on emotional extremes, moments of unprecedented joy or crushing sadness. It is easier to transcribe these feelings into music. Middle grounds are much too complicated to address with music, the confusion, the mood swings come fast and what would seem like a perfect fit with one’s emotions at one point make no sense after a few minutes. They lack clarity. Melancholy drenched songs in particular seem to connect better with the receivers of music than their happier counterparts. Steven Wilson, mastermind behind Progressive rock group Porcupine Tree, once introduced one of their saddest songs “Stop Swimming” by saying “this next song is a very sad song, but if you’re like me, you’ll find that the saddest songs are also the most beautiful”. I find this to hold true.

    Tomas Phillips & Marihiko Hara – Prosa

    ,
    Prosa marks the first collaboration between Marihiko Hara and Tomas Phillips… Utilizing a diverse range of instrumentation, both electronic and acoustic, Prosa is as still as it is dynamic. Its formation (a transcontinental process, through the post) was an exercise of patience and concerted application alike. Thematically (but indirectly), Prosa shares a space with writers whose palette wavers between existential crisis, awkward distance, and snapshots of emotional expenditure (e.g. Jean-Philippe Toussaint) and with certain “quiet” descriptions found in classical Japanese literature.

    ,
    M. Ostermeier first two releases were both in mini-album form:  Percolate on [parvo art] and Lakefront on Hibernate.  These releases garnered strong reviews in The Wire, Textura, and The Silent Ballet for juxtaposing melancholic stillness with restrained post-rock urgency.  Throughout, the fragmented piano infused with electronic textures and field recordings established a melancholic and reflective mood but more through style than through melody.

    Tim Hecker – Norberg

    ,
    Recorded at the Norberg Festival (Sweden) amidst the mineshafts and cluttered buildings strewn throughout parts the city, this 21 minute live piece summarises much of what makes Tim Hecker’s music so vital and compelling. Adept at counter-pointing the most ferocious of distorted platters with smooth beds of ambient sound and potent melodic overtones, Tim Hecker creates music with a vast depth. On Norberg, this depth seems almost endless, as layer upon layer of sound are compiled into a swelling and all together visceral oceanic sound wave. Recently touring Australia and New Zealand and performing at ROOM40’S annual festival Open Frame, this CD comes on the back of some incredible live performances in the Southern Hemisphere.

Total late night guitar meanderings blurred with a haze of deep churning scrapes from various instruments and layered drone bliss, creating 2 totally immersive and beautiful psychedelic drone.

    Cory Allen – Pearls

    ,
    Cory Allen’s ‘Pearls’ is one of those albums that don’t want you to get too comfortable. The album’s press release suggests that it explores ‘existential landscape’ – two words I don’t think I’ve ever seen put together before with regards to music, but somehow fitting. The album is not exactly inviting but isn’t cold either. It is an album that has a clearly defined narrative in a way that I haven’t seen in quite some time. Allen is always working toward an end goal and there is an almost existential philosophical statement in this small self-contained album.

    Gurun Gurun – Gurun Gurun

    ,
    Gurun Gurun is a Czech-based experimental, weird ambient & improvised music collective formed in the autumn 2007 by guitarist Tomas Knoflicek and keyboardist Jara Tarnovski… Their musical work combines guitars, analogue synthesizers, turntables, acoustic instruments and digital effects to span musical spaces ranging from hypno-minimalist atmospheres to warm tones of slow moving, repetitive melodic stanzas. Their twelve track debut album is a balancing act of frenetic yet sedate melodic layering that dances between chaotic and considered; multiple tones vie for space around central melodies that sound as though they could have been sampled from multiple genres of film soundtrack.

    Alexander Tucker began as the vocalist in post-rock hardcore 5-piece ‘Unhome’ who released one album “A Short History of Houses” (Unlabel) and a split single with Papa M. Unhome split in late 1999 and Tucker went on to tour with Detroit space-rockers ‘Fuxa’. Simultaneously, Tucker had been developing his interest in improvisation using detuned guitars, tape loops, mini disc player and fx pedals. In early 2000 Tucker recorded a solo self-titled album of acoustic finger-picking, experimental electronics, field recordings and spooked vocals, which was picked up by Tom Greenwood of Jackie-O-Motherfucker and released under his U-Sound Archives label.

    Following on from David’s Presets LP last year for Blackest Rainbow, he has worked on a brand new full length CDR, exploring a more multi instrumental drone sound, experimenting with stringed objects and a far more dark sounding sound, but with its roots in some traditional sounding more far out folk. David’s guitar plucking appears at various times, and its blends in perfectly with this new approach to his music. Limited to 100 copies in full colour covers.

    Fabio Orsi – Stand Before Me, Oh My Soul (CD)

    ,
    For some, expressing oneself is a difficult task. It takes away any aspect of security one may have been clinging on to and opens up your inner being to be displayed in all its detail. For others it comes naturally; and be it through some form of art, it is quite a beautiful thing to behold. Experimental, Avant Garde or simply music that doesn’t follow traditional structures or sounds is, to my mind, the most spectacular form of expressionism. Sure, words can be more intimate and accessible, but allowing your thoughts, feelings and emotions to control an instrument is raw and empowering. This is what Fabio Orsi’s latest work feels like to me; a trip through memories, deep thoughts and heavy emotions. This album is ecstatic, it’s uplifting and it sounds so pure and rich; this sound coupled with the album and track names seems as though he poured his entire soul into it.

    Danny Saul – Kinison – Goldthwait (CD)

    ,
    To have the names of two of the most famous comedians of the 1980’s, let alone two engaged in one of the harshest feuds ever between any comedians as the title of the album, with artwork to match, could leave the prospective listener with a number of different notions regarding the music contained in this album. Personally speaking, having never heard any of Danny Saul’s previous albums, the first thing that came to mind prior to listening to this release was that it could be an electronica influenced album, with lots of tension and relief, and loads of samples by both comedians embedded randomly within the music. I couldn’t have been any farther from the truth…
